High quality lens scratch from even the softest material we use.. It is best to buy lens paper or glass cleaning cloth

You can do whatever you want.
Why don't you think for a few seconds, and ask the question you really want to ask.

No baby wipes have moisturizers and oils in it. Take a lint-free cloth and some isopropyl alcohol and use that instead.

Sure, but what are you going to use to clean your baby?

That's a great thing to do if your objective is to damage the lens.

Good lord - NO! It's just one tiny step above using regular window cleaner, which will ruin the lens coating, or strip the finish off the mirror.
Leave the glass alone, unless it's caked with dirt.
If you are absolutely compelled to clean the optics - use this.

A very poor choice, they contain soaps and powders that have no flash point or evaporate Leaving residue.behind.
A lens cloth you can get at any eyeglass store along with cleaning fluids.
Lint free cotton fleece dry cleaned, you can use denatured alcohol with no water content.
Coated lenses don't take well to any form of abrasion. After a cleaning, they should be covered and only use a very soft lens or artist brush to remove dust.
